The 713th Anti-Armored Helicopter Squadron (Serbo-Croatian: 713. protivoklopna helikopterska eskadrila / 713. противоклопна хеликоптерска ескадрила) was an helicopter squadron of Yugoslav Air Force formed in 1988 by order from February 28, 1986.
Squadron was established at Pleso airport as part of 111th Aviation Brigade.
It was equipped with domestic-made Gazelle Gama anti-tank helicopters.
As the war in Croatia intensified, the brigade found itself located in hostile territory surrounded by Croatian forces, the High Command of the Yugoslav Air Force ordered the evacuation of its units to safer territory, so three of its helicopter squadrons were re-located to Zalužani near Banja Luka and reorganized in to Helicopter Regiment with two squadrons. The 713th Anti-Armored Helicopter Squadron was disbanded and absorbed by the 711th Anti-Armored Helicopter Squadron.
